The Hydra lived in the region later known as Wetlands of the Hydra in Argolis. The second of the twelve labours performed by the legendary hero Herakles was the slaying of the Hydra. In this he succeeded with the help of his nephew Iolaos, as they burned each neck he cut before new heads could grow back. Another version of the myth said that Herakles used the snake's own venom to prevent its regeneration.
Influence and legacy
The story of the Hydra and Herakles' survived through the years, and was memorized in reliefs used to decorate temples and households.
One of Layla Hassan's Animus modifications allowed Kassandra to obtain greaves adorned with the shape of the Hydra, as well as sails and a figurehead featuring the likeness of the Hydra for the ship Adrestia.
